SALT LAKE CITY -- June 6, 2013

Memorial Estates, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Security National
Financial Corporation (NASDAQ Symbol “SNFCA”), announced that over 100,000
people attended the Memorial Day festivities that were held at each of its six
wholly owned nondenominational cemeteries. Various activities, including
performances by community bands and bagpipers, and barbeques took place at the
cemeteries. Memorial Estates has a tradition of holding Memorial Day
festivities that commemorate the lives of deceased loved ones and those who
served our country in the armed forces. In addition to the Memorial Day
celebrations, Memorial Estates holds events at its cemeteries during the year
to benefit different charities.

Beginning in 1960, Memorial Estates began offering estate planning from its
first cemetery located on Redwood Road in Salt Lake City, Utah. Since then, it
has grown to six cemeteries and eight mortuaries located in the states of Utah
and California. The Memorial Day festivities have grown over the years to
encompass not just a celebration of our armed forces, but also ancestors in
general. Through the years, there has been an increase in family reunions and
other family activities held at Memorial Estates’ cemeteries.

Mr. G. Robert Quist, Vice President and Cemetery Sales Director of Memorial
Estates, stated: “Memorial Estates has recently experienced significant growth
in its preneed cemetery and funeral products. Its cemeteries have also
received beautification awards. I am extremely optimistic about the future
growth of Memorial Estates’ cemetery and mortuary operations. We look forward
to continuing to increase our market share in the cemetery and funeral markets
where we presently do business.”
